Material testing

Together with our partner organisation, the Astronomy
Technology Centre in Edinburgh, the Advanced
Materials Group can offer a comprehensive materials
testing facility down to low temperatures.

Property

Temperature Range

Thermal conductivity

-
300K

Specific Heat

-
300K

UTS and Young’s modulus

4K, 77K and 300K

CTE and contraction integrals

-
300K

Current equipment includes:

Servohydraulic test machines operating at liquid
nitrogen and helium temperatures for Young’s modulus
and strength measurements. Loads up to 10kN.

Dynamic mechanical analyzer operating down to
-
80 C.

CTE measurement system operating at liquid helium
and nitrogen measurements, a variable temperature
test cryostat for thermal conductivity and specific heat
measurements.

The following slides show some of the capabilities …..
